They Have A Need, A Need For Greed

 

You can find them almost anywhere

The thing that links them is their lack of care

In politics, religion, education, business, both big and small

They are the one's who never seem to fall

Pompous arrogance and an assumed superiority

Are blatant signs of their lack of generosity

Of course, they claim innocence and ignorance in equal measure

As they continue to stash away their personal treasure

It is in other peoples interest they do these things

Strange that hardship is all it ever brings

They look down and with false tears they say

Sorry but it seems that you will have to pay

Alas, what is generally left unsaid

The underlying beast must be fed

For don't you know, they have a need

They have a need for greed
